it' better u use the GUI package instead of the coe.
u have to create a data environment and then a data source in which u have to
select the OLE connector that u will be going to use . in this case it is " microsoft ole db conncector for oracle" (it is in the bottom of the list provided) . select this and press CONTINUE.

select the data base u want to use from oracle and provide the autentication mode.
after the authentication is done . TEST THE CONNECTION by pressing the button in botton most.
if the connection is OK. THEN continue and check the data source whether u have succeded or not.
also to ensure whether the connection is made or nor check the data source property of the FORM. there u will find some one as the connection string.

hope this help u..............
